Solo 6-miler + Random Thoughts

Hey people, I got out for a run today!
I skipped my morning run because I was feeling goofy from self-medicating last night. Cold medication makes me goofy. It's like my body is here but I have no control over it.
Then I got home from work, and I can't resist lacing up those running shoes and going for an easy run.
Ran outside for 6 miles for 1 hr 08 minutes.
And I think I left my lungs at around Mile 1 and Mile 5.

Random thoughts, anyone?
  1. My Paddy Wag has grown.  
  2. Sang: "Knick Knack Paddy Whack, give a dog a bone, this old man came rollin' home. ..." 
  3. I used to be so scared of dogs. I believe it was my first trip to my boyfriend's dad's house and when I arrived, there were some 5 or 6 dogs just barking and running around. I was scared. I wanted my boyfriend to lift me up and carry me into the house. I told him I can't do it. I told him he is mean for wanting me walk past those dogs. He claims that I said I hate him. But I don't remember that part. Now, we just laugh at my irrational fears. 
  4. I need to get better at spitting. 
  5. A run is actually pretty good upper respiratory therapy. It loosens up all the congestion.
  6. Maybe I should just do 3 miles and be done with it.
  7. Spring is going to be here. While I enjoy a pretty spring day, I kinda like my cold morning runs. 
  8. RnR New Orleans - I'm really running for fun.  I want to be faster, but I am scared to come up with a time goal because I don't want to get disappointed.
  9. I haven't done my fartleks like I am supposed to. :( 
  10. I haven't been doing yoga like I am supposed to. :( 
  11. If I get trapped overnight at an airport, I would hate to not have a change of clean panties. 
  12. The sky is pretty - the sun's setting and the sky has a wash of pink and lavender. 
  13. Sing: "I see your true colors shining through. I see your true colors, that's why I love you. So don't be afraid, to let me show your true colors, you're beautiful like a rainbow." 
    So, that rounds up today's run. I felt pretty good. And I really enjoyed this solo run. It was my pace, my random thoughts, my random bursts of bad singing, and I get to change directions at any point in time. And when I was quiet, I was quiet and just enjoyed the silence, without feeling the need to spit something out of my mouth.


  1. Good run and I'm proud of you for not stopping at 3 miles. :)
    A goal for RNR New Orleans might be to beat your last time. It's achievable and you won't be disappointed. Don't worry, just enjoy! :)

  2. Great job on the run! You are going to have such a blast in NOLA!

  3. 4. Running has made me an expert spitter. My mom is not proud of seeing me spit like my brothers do, and even better. :)

    8. You are going to be awesome in New Orleans. Even if you beat your old time by 2 seconds, it's still a PR.

    11. That's why I always put a pair in my carry-on!

    And now you know more than you probably wanted to. Have a great Friday!!!

  4. you'll do great in new orleans!

  5. great job getting your 6 miler in. i carry clean undies and a fresh shirt with me when I travel so that #11 doesn't happen!

  6. good job on ur 6 miler. u r getting faster!!!
    I used to be afraid of dogs as well! i got bit as a child and was so scared of them. now my parents have a pit bull and i love him to death!

    spitting while running is an art form. u have to practice! lol

    u want yoga? here is a yoga challenge for u.
    do these 3 videos by sunday:

  7. 4! (my snot rockets improved)

    10! you don't need yoga - YOU NEED BURPEES!

    (P.S. please join our 2-minute Burpee contest: here)

    ... Carla Bruni sounds good because you don't understand the words ... like eating taco bell - i don't want anyone to tell me what the filling is made of!

  8. OMG OMG OMG !!!! I freaking LOVE True Colors! I could listen to it over and over and never get sick of it!

    Also, and this won't even surprise you, I get loopy from cold medicine. One "shot" of Nyquil and I feel like I've taken shots of alcohol. It immediately makes me have to pee - then sleep.

    I really enjoy randomness. It is fun!
